I have purchased as lot of outdoor gear over the past few years. I have also had the opportunity to field test and review a lot of gear, specifically for hiking. You can check out some of my reviews here. I have listed below, a range of great retailers where you can purchase gear online. Their service and quality are both excellent and I highly recommend supporting them.
Disclosure: Some of the links on this page are affiliate links and if you click through them to make a purchase I will earn a small commission. This does not inflate your costs but helps me to further develop this site. Keep in mind that I link these companies and their products because of their quality and service and not because of the commission I receive from your purchases. The decision is yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you.
